Though there are many a times when we shame our police officers for their negligence towards the society and its citizens but every now and then, we hear some brave incidences that restore our faith in them. Even though our police department is rooted in corruption and violence but still, there are officers who are performing their duties with upright honesty and dedication. And, we salute them.
One such courageous incident happened in Bhont, a small village near Shimla, where police officers carried a pregnant woman on their shoulders for six miles because the heavy snowfall had blocked all the roads down the mountain.
Kamini, a 23-year-old woman went into labour in the early evening of January 9 and called for an ambulance to take her to the hospital. Unfortunately, due to heavy snow, the paramedics team could not reach her remote village Bhont, located in the foothills of the Himalayas. Realizing such a helpless situation, Kamini and her mother lost all hope of getting the prompt treatment.
Then, the police officers after hearing about Kamini condition reached at her place and wrapped her in a quilt(bedspread) and, asked her to lie down on the cot they brought with them. They slowly started walking down the mountain, trekking for three and a half hours in the freezing weather.
After trudging in frosty winter, they successfully reached the hospital at 9.30 PM. Kamini was admitted and she gave birth to a healthy baby girl. Such a heroic act by our officers deserves a huge applaud because they not only protected a mother’s life but also, saved a new born baby.
Hats off to Shimla police and its fearless jawans. People, from all corners, congratulated this bravery:
Congrats, Shimla Police for its great act of humanity. Remarkable, carrying on shoulder by policemen 10kms a pregnant woman for childbirth.
